On the Trail of the Monarch Butterfly Travelling Exhibition

Opens July 22, 2013

In August of 2005, Mexican filmmaker and pilot Francisco Gutiérrez took off in his ultralight aircraft from Montreal to follow the monarch butterflies on their 6,000 km migration from Canada to the mountains of central Mexico. Don't miss the special photographic display of this 72-day adventure to raise awareness about butterfly habitat conservation, presented in collaboration with the Embassy of Mexico.

New Exhibition

A Piece of Cake!

Baking an apple cake seems simple, but what if you had to produce all of the ingredients yourself? The production of flour, eggs, maple syrup, apples, milk, and butter takes a lot of hard work as well as the right tools. Take a peek inside the Museum’s cupboards to see the tools needed to prepare these ingredients. See artifacts in action, and you may even be there to see newly-hatched chicks in the incubator. We can be grateful that we don’t need to do more than visit the grocery store!

Outdoor Exhibition

Energy Park: Nature at Work

Energy Park: Nature at Work

See renewable energy in action at the Canada Agriculture Museum’s Energy Park: Nature at Work. Farms are not only consumers of energy, increasingly they are also producers. Take a stroll through this outdoor park and try your hand at “harvesting” energy using our solar interactive. See if you can beat the wind and pump water faster than a windmill!

Indoor Exhibitions

Taking Care of Beesness

The new exhibition Taking Care of Beesness demonstrates the important role that bees play in pollination and informs visitors as to how beekeeping is essential to the production of numerous Canadian crops, as well as to the production of honey and many other by-products.


Tractors is an exciting look at the "farmer's office in the field". This exhibition shows how the tractor has evolved from an unfamiliar oddity on Canadian farms to a commonplace tool in less than 100 years.

LEARNING TO DO BY DOING 4-H Canada display

The Canada Agriculture Museum is celebrating the 100th anniversary of 4-H Canada. The clubs created a way for boys and girls to get together to learn about agriculture and rural life by “getting their hands dirty” through practical experience. Check out photos and memorabilia from throughout the years in this display.

Virtual Exhibitions

Bees: A Honey of an Idea

Bees: A Honey of an Idea is virtual exhibition exploring the essential role bees play in the pollination of many Canadian food crops.

Food for Health

Food is a topic of endless discussion. It’s something we can’t do without and it can also be a source of great enjoyment. Is there anything as personal or as important as the foods we choose to eat each day? Our health depends to a large extent on what we eat. The Food for Health travelling exhibition and website takes a fresh look at the foods we eat and answers many of the questions Canadians have about their food choices, about food safety and about the role food plays in ensuring good health.
